Pratunam Market (Thai: ประตูน้ำ) is one of Bangkok's major markets, and is Thailand's largest clothing market. The name Pratunam means Water gate.

Overview[edit]

The market comprises retail stores and outdoor stalls, the latter of which are aimed at tourists. It is located at the intersection of Ratchaprarop and Phetburi roads in the district Ratchathewi. This is may be the cheapest market for buying clothes[citation needed], fabrics and textiles in central Bangkok, while the Chatuchak Weekend Market probably is the low price leader[citation needed]. Other merchandise includes watches, handicrafts and more.

The Pratunam Market covers the whole area around and behind the Amari Watergate and Indra Regent hotels with the rainbow-colored Baiyoke I hotel and the towering Baiyoke Tower II hotels inside it.
